The brainchild of Brooklyn's Joseph K. Burke, Obfusc sounds distinctly worldly in its outlook. 'Friends Fade In Fade Out' sees elegant synth melodies aligned to chill-out beats. 'Jade Tree Ghost Town' is Oriental-flavoured and features sampled voices whilst the fun and fruity 'Grand Chasms Trace The Sky' captures Burke in playful mode. Interestingly, half of the tracks included on this record are actually remixes, which either speaks of a lack of material or indicates the adaptabilty of his own work. The latter argument would appear to be stronger as Mint's 'Spiral Mix' version of 'Orthodox Contortionist' is an excellent diversion into Boards Of Canada-style mystery and Cheju's take on 'Jade Tree Ghost Town' ensures that every note is drawn out with haunting results. The closing 'Goodbye Forever' is another melancholic highlight on another quietly impressive release from Boltfish.
